Young Sheldon spin-off gets big updateCBS

Young Sheldon, the spin-off of The Big Bang Theory, is getting its own spin-off, and that spin-off has just received a big update.

Back in January, it was reported that CBS was considering a show focused on Sheldon Cooper's older brother Georgie and his bride-to-be Mandy, with Montana Jordan and Emily Osment reprising their roles.

Now that show has been given a full series order, with season 1 set to premiere during the 2024-25 TV season (via TV Line).

Young Sheldon will conclude its seventh and final season in just a few months, and upcoming episodes are set to feature multiple events we already know about from Sheldon's life: his moving to Caltech, Georgie and Mandy's wedding, and the death of dad George Sr.

It looks like the spin-off might have a slight bittersweet tone, but we'll have to wait and see what kind of direction the series goes down.

In a statement, CBS Entertainment President Amy Reisenbach said: "It has been a privilege to spend the last seven years with Sheldon and the Cooper family and now this wonderful journey will continue with Georgie and Mandy.

"Chuck [Lorre] and both Steves [Molaro and Holland] have done a masterful job developing these characters and entertaining generations of fans with relatable, heartwarming stories brought to life by Montana and Emily. We eagerly look forward to the next chapter in this beloved universe."

The aforementioned trio added: "From The Big Bang Theory to Young Sheldon, the world of the Cooper family has been incredibly special to us. We're very excited to continue their stories through the eyes of Georgie and Mandy."

Young Sheldon airs on CBS in the US and E4 in the UK.
